Our award-winning podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers have the experience and expertise to help you get back to living without foot pain of any kind.
Why the Big Toe?
Although gout can affect any joint in your body, it tends to affect the joint of your big toe most often because of the cooler temperature of your feet. The uric acid crystallizes and builds up in your joint, causing pain and inflammation.
Gout may partly happen due to hereditary genes but is more often caused by eating foods high in uric acid, obesity, and/or alcohol consumption. If left untreated, the pain associated with gout can last for weeks. This usually involves disability, swelling, and redness. However, medications (oral and injections), supportive dressings, and special shoes can help these attacks last only a few days.
If you have a gout attack, we encourage to contact our award-winning podiatrist in Waxahachie to find out the cause of these attacks and how to prevent them in the future.
